Today, September 16th, 2011, marks the four-year anniversary of Robert Jordan's death. He is remembered fondly by those who knew him, and gratefully by those who read his books.
Our warmest regards go out to Harriet, Wilson, and Jordan's entire family during this bittersweet remembrance.
One of our longtime members, Isabel, posted one of his quotes today, which I gladly share with you here:
"Fantasy is the literature of hope. In fantasy there is a belief that you can make a difference. Today may be bleak, but you can live through today. And tomorrow will be better. And maybe there'll be a different darkness tomorrow, but you can live through that, too and you can make the light come, and the darkness go away."
RIP, Robert Jordan. Your legacy lives on.
